Joining Dwija for her superb annual link up! It was fun looking back on 2014 through our photos- it was definitely a busy year and full of newness and changes.
I honestly can’t remember anything from January and our pictures didn’t have much to offer- mostly the girls playing inside. So for January all I can say is, WINTER.
And SNOW for February. Tim kept our wood stove burning away and our living room was kept warm and toasty (we’re pretty sure it even passed 100!):
We headed to Ecuador with two of my brothers in March to visit family. One of my brothers decided to come with us just days before we left!
May is another blurry month- we went to the National Zoo on Memorial Day and that’s about all I remember…but I know we had beautiful flowers in our yard!
Tim graduated with his MA! Evie finished her ballet class, and Audrey started walking (holding the record at 17 months- I just pray that Heidi is an early walker!).
We enjoyed the 4th with family, and spent a glorious two weeks in NC. Sun! Sand! Water!
September was crazy. The a/c broke in our old house the week before we were scheduled to close (thankfully it didn’t delay anything, though!), Evie started preschool, we moved, and about two weeks later Heidi arrived!
We enjoyed a fun Halloween with cousins, aunts, and uncles. Evie and Audrey both chose to dress up as Sleeping Beauty and loved the concept of free candy. :)
Heidi was baptized and we had our house blessed. Then Tim’s sister came to visit us over Thanksgiving. Unfortunately Audrey got sick the day of, so we weren’t all together for the family dinner at my parents’ house.
December was full of wonderful Advent and Christmas-y things. I turned 30 (womp, womp) but the day was topped off by an awesome surprise party. This picture hardly does justice to the amazing work my family did with it all- my sisters made all the food to boot!
It’s been a good year- full, crazy, and peppered with emotional ups and downs. I’m so grateful to be settled in our new house and for all the memories we have here so far and for (hopefully) all the ones to come. Happy New Year!!
